Watch: RPF officer saves woman from falling under moving train at Kalyan station

A constable of the Railway Protection Force saved the life of a woman who lost her balance while boarding a train in Kalyan station and was in danger of falling into the platform gap.

The video of the incident was shared by news agency ANI in which the woman could be seen slipping through the gap of the coaches of a running train and the constable pulled her out, saving her life. The woman was trying to board the train in Kalyan, Maharashtra.

According to PTI, RPF sub-inspector Vijay Solanki was on duty on platform number 5 when the incident took place. "The woman, headed to Bengaluru, was boarding Udayan Express when she lost balance and was about to fall into the gap as the train started moving. Solanki quickly pulled her to safety," an official told PTI.

Earlier, in December 2019, a Railway Protection Force (RPF) constable risked his life by jumping on the railway track to save a man from being run over by an approaching train at the Thane station in Maharashtra.

The CCTV footage shows a man crossing the tracks when a train was coming towards him. Suddenly, constable Anil Kumar, clad in a white shirt, jumped onto the track, hauled the man up to the platform and then managed to jump out of the train’s way seconds away from being run over.
